Country singer Mickey Guyton put on an extraordinary performance at yesterday’s Super Bowl! The Texas-born singer performed the anthem at SoFi Stadium right before the match up between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Los Angeles Rams.
Mickey has made history as the first Black woman to earn a Grammy nomination in a country category and the first Black solo woman to host the ACM Awards. The four-time Grammy nominee is known for her hit song “Black Like Me.”
Before she took the field, she shared how she was preparing for one of the biggest moments of her career.
“Well, normally I just go up there and I just sing the national anthem. I know it so well. But this time because it’s the Super Bowl, I really just wanted to set my intentions right. I think this is an important moment for our country. An important, this is an important time. We’re going through so much. I’m so blessed, so excited, and just grateful.”
You killed it, Mickey! We love watching you!
